Full Version: YOUR most anticipated fights ever.
FightHype Community > BOXING HYPE > Boxing
These are probably my top 5 in over 20 years watching boxing(in no order).

1- Tyson-Holyfield I. Everyone wanted to see this fight, and it sure did not disappoint. Had over 20 guys in my parents living room just going crazy throughout the whole fight.

2- Toney-Jones Jr. Man was I super pumped for this fight. I liked Roy, but even back then I was a young Toney hugger. I knew Toney would lose that fight when they showed his next day weight and KNEW he lost his weight the wrong way and Roy was in amazing shape. Toney was soft and lethargic. But before I saw Toney's next day weight, I thought Toney would eventually KO him and I even wrote my parents a note telling them that I was off to watch the fight and to watch Toney KO Roy. My Mom still has that note.

3-Bowe-Golota II. Traveled to AC for this fight with the now wife. After there first fight riot and bad blood, I was so excited to see this fight. I knew Bowe was undertrained and took Andrew lightly the first time, but figured he would be really prepared the second time. Man was it a very sad day for me. Bowe looked shop worn and showed heart but was not strong enough to keep Golota down. He still won cause Golota is a dumbass, but it was sad seeing Bowe get beat up like that.

4-Jones- Tarver II. Man I could not wait to see Roy just destroy mikdud. Unfortunately... well we all know the story.

5- Hopkins-Trinidad. Never a huge Hopkins fan, but man I wanted him to destroy Tito so bad. This fight was awesome to watch, amazing performance and great ending. The build up and then the whole 911 thing, this fight had me pumped to see.

I am sure there is probably some I am forgetting, but these are five to me that had me salivating until they finally met in that square ring. Oh... which brings me to my next point, Mosley-Mayweather has surpassed all of these. I can not wait for this fight!!!There are no words to describe how passionate I feel about this fight.

So come on... anyone else have some big fights THEY just could not wait to see?

Tszyu vs Mitchell II (I wanted to see Sharmba cry again & was not dissapointed)
Tszyu vs Judah (A lot of talk by Judah backed up with nothing)

There are others but they all stand out.
All of these replies are just so generic.

Not one post mentioning Butterbean, Tex Cobb, or some washed up football player.

This thread has forced me to retire to my parlor and sip some tea before bedtime.
Reading these answers makes me think that the guys who are running those intensely cruel "Just for Men" commercials on FNF have got their demographics correct.

Calzaghe v Jones at number three since I was desperate to go to NYC and seeing a big fight in MSG is a tick in a box as far as im concerned

Hatton v Castillo is my second most anticipated fight since it afforded me my first opportunity to assault Las Vegas.

Hatton v Mayweather most anticipated because this time, I was ready for Las Vegas.
